Price matched to Currys and Richer Sounds.

Last years model but What HIFI recommended.

John Lewis will more than likely price match for anyone that prefers John Lewis!?

There's a reason they are half the price of an OLED, (and its not value.)

And they are?
They looked amazing next to the OLED in John Lewis to me.
OLED is redundant technology already, as only the 1% can afford them and they will be superseded by tech like this!

I own the 49KS9000 - and the issue with the 7000, 8000 and 9000 is that a significant portion of the panels are suffering from worse than average backlight bleed, particularly when displaying in HDR.

Decent HDR TV deals are very thin on the ground at the moment.

As LCD/LED suffer from poor black levels, they try to compensate this by being brighter. When your in the bright lights of the shop floor, all this brightness and high contrast looks great.

Get the bright TV home, and it still looks great for the first half an hour or so. Its at this point, you release your eyes are feeling very tired as effectively, you've been shining bright light into them for the last half an hour. You then turn end up having to turn the brightness down and lose the contrast you paid for. (I speak from experience here.)

OLED works the other way, as the contrast is high due to the exceptional black level without having to be that bright. High contrast without the eye strain.

They've just released a new firmware this week that allows you to manually compensate any judder, etc.....not that I've experienced any on mine anyway (55KS7000).

spoke to samsung support online (via chat). after explaining the problem they asked when i bought it (less than 2 weeks ago) and their response was immediately - "send it back and ask for another one". I asked if it was a known issue and he said it may be a manufacturing defect.

Out of interest, what is the exact problem you are having?

For a while mine was turning itself off and on shortly after I turned the tv on. After that it seemed to be fine. Recently however I've noticed that the TV can be on for several hours before it decides to reset itself It only takes a few seconds to do this but for a TV that is approaching £1k its not good enough. Also once the screen went blank but the sound continued to play. I had to manually turn it off and on to get the picture back. I've had it reset itself whilst just watching tv but last night it did it when I was browsing a USB drive which I had plugged in.

TBH I reckon its a software problem rather than hardware so I'm not keen on returning it. That said I've had a look on forums and I can't find anyone else with the same issue.

this or the ks8000? help!

Same as mine which is just a week old. Richer sounds offered replacement straight away. Will see tomorrow what the replacement is like. Apart from that stunning tv.

They're both 2016 models, the 8000 is just a higher spec - 8 speakers as opposed to 4, better design (stand) and build quality etc...

Get the 8000 with free UHD player and 3 films. You can always sell the spinner to keep the cost down. The 49" seems to have less issues in both models, than the bigger 55".
I've got the 8000 and it's perfect. I always bought Sony and hated Samsung, due to their quality control issues and build quality....but I've been pleasantly surprised. The picture is amazing from virtually all sources and Tizen is so much better then the clunky android system that Sony now use.
The Samsung's are the best value and best all round performance TV's you can buy at the moment.

Any rational reason why the didn't do the 8000 range in a 60" model? See it jumps from 55" to 65" where as the KS7000 has a 60" model.

Got my eye on a refurbed 60" KS7000 on ebay at the moment at £899

Exact problem - TV just switches off momentarily & switches back on - just like a power glitch. Screen goes black, then on again within 1-2 seconds. The latest firmware update this week didn't fix it. But I agree - I think its not hardware. Particulrly happens when I'm watching TV through the Humax box. Also, I've noticed the TV is not very tolerant on weak TV signal strength - ulike the other 3 Samsungs & the Humax box in the house.

Spoke to John Lewis and they are organising a replacement for me. Bit of a faff but will see if a new set makes any difference.
